Dallas, TX – The Volunteers of America Classic – the only LPGA Tour event in
the state of Texas – will continue its partnership with the Northern Texas PGA
Foundation for the third year in a row. Youth female golfers can compete for
the opportunity to play with the pros next September by participating in the
Volunteers of America Classic Girls Championship.
The Northern Texas PGA Foundation will conduct the Volunteers of America
Classic Girls Championship Monday, July 11 through Wednesday, July 13, 2022.
Tribute Golf Links will play host for rounds one and two, and Wednesday’s
final round will take place on Old American Golf Club.
Exemption opportunities into the Volunteers of America Classic Girls
Championship will begin in January 2022. Youth female golfers can compete
in select All American Tour events hosted by the Northern Texas PGA, select
Prestige Tour events hosted by the Southern Texas PGA and select
tournaments hosted by the Legends Junior Tour.
Last year’s Volunteers of America Classic Girls Championship resulted in
Avery Zweig of McKinney, TX, ranked number one for the class of 2025,
winning the exemption and playing in the 2021 LPGA Tour Volunteers of
America Classic. A second exemption was also granted to Farah O’Keefe of
Austin, TX, class of 2023, who also made her LPGA debut last summer.
O’Keefe made the cut and finished T56. Zweig finished 36-holes at +3 and
missed the cut on the number.
In addition to awarding an LPGA Tour exemption, the partnership between
the Volunteers of America Classic and the Northern Texas PGA Foundation
will impact the community by providing a junior golf clinic, a PGA HOPE clinic
for female veterans, and award a $5,000 college scholarship to a deserving
female junior golfer.
For the team at the Volunteers of America Classic, the opportunity to help
inspire the next generation of LPGA Tour players and expand its community
outreach is something that fits right into the tournament’s mission.
